Changing Skins

"To change skins, evolve into new cycles, I feel one has to learn to discard.  If one changes internally, one should not continue to live with the same objects.  They reflect one's mind and psyche of yesterday.  I throw away what has no dynamic, living use."

                                                                         --Anais Nin, novelist and diarist

I'm gearing up for yet another attempt to clear out the dross and effluvium of decades of hoarding, which attach to me and follow in my wake, as though such objects form the parameters of my existence.  They don't give me meaning--I give them meaning.

Anything which does not support me, drains me.
